Off to War

ACME News photo, dated February 21, 1941

Men of New York's 212th Coast Artillery Regiment are shown inside Pennsylvania Station in the heart of Manhattan just before leaving for training at Camp Stewart, Georgia. This view shows the hustle and bustle that characterized the station all during the war. Hundreds of relatives and well-wishers are present to see the artillerymen off before they board their trains.
